Virtuoso flautist Janet See, of Bainbridge, will share the stage with Jillon Stoppels-Dupree and Margriet Tindemans at 4 p.m. Oct. 4, at the Bainbridge Commons, 402 Brien Dr.
The three will perform using period instruments, which See said creates “a wonderfully unique tone and color.”
“The flute is articulate. It’s a pleasing instrument to communicate the music,” she said, likening it to an artist’s use of an “interesting palette.”
Sundays concert, a part of the First Sundays at the Commons series, should be accessible even to those not familiar with Baroque.
“Invariably, when music’s well-played, people respond to that quality, and the early instruments enable us to convey it warmly, with expressiveness,” she said.
There is no doubt Sunday’s performance will be “well-played” considering the caliber of talent.
See trained at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music and the Royal Conservatory in The Hague. She has been principal flautist with the English Baroque Soloists and co-principal of The Orchestre Revolutionaire et Romantique and the Philharmonia Baroque.
Stoppels-Dupree, on harpsichord, has played world-wide, recorded extensively, and has appeared on television and National Public Radio. Her playing was hailed by the Chicago Tribune as “lively and colorful.” She has taught at the Oberlin College Conservatory, the University of Washington, University of Michigan, Northwest Center for Early Music Studies and the Cornish College of the Arts.
Tindemans plays medieveal fiddle, rebec, harp and viola da Gamba and is a founding member of the German ensemble Sequentia and Belgium’s Huelgas Ensemble. She performs with the King’s Noyse and the Seattle Baroque Orchestra, among others. She teaches widely.
Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors and $10 for youth, at the door. Call 842-3380 or visit www.firstsundaysconcerts.org for information.
